My worry about a new list would be that it'd be just like a standard;


If there was to be a merger, I would think that choosing an existing one
would be best to help avoid this. "Linux-cluster" is pretty generic and
might fit.

I understand that devs working on project like having a dedicated list
for their project of interest. For this reason, I decided not to press
this any more.

My focus was from a user's perspective... A common place to send users
who are looking for help with any part of open-source clustering where
potential helpers can be found. Given the interconnected nature of the
cluster components, it's hard for users to know which component is
troubling them at first.
